Even though December isn’t done yet, it’s not too early to print up (or pin) this fun and easy Catholic saints word search that features the names of nine saints who have feast days in January.
In this puzzle, words can be found running up and down, left to right, and diagonal. Words that should be searched for are the portions of the clues that do not appear within the parentheses.
Terms in the January Catholic Saints Word Search include: Agnes, (Elizabeth Ann) Seton, Angela (Merici), (John) Neumann, (Thomas) Aquinas, (John) Bosco, Francis (de Sales), Titus, André (Bessette)
As a possible follow up activity to this puzzle, children can work on finding the correct feast day for each saint. Children could also be asked to find other facts about one of the saints on the list, such as when they lived, the circumstances of their life and death, where they lived, or what causes/places/things of which they are patron saints.
